Antonio Puerta Cause Of Death, Obituary – The captain of Real Madrid, Sergio Ramos, paid tribute to his “dear brother” Antonio Puerta, who passed away 10 years ago on Monday at the age of 22. The player, who is now 31 years old, paid tribute to his former teammate from Sevilla by posting a series of tributes on his various social media profiles. On August 25, at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan stadium, Puerta experienced a heart failure episode while playing in a La Liga match against Getafe.
Three days later, he passed away in the hospital as a consequence of multiple organ failure brought on by the cardiac arrests. These cardiac arrests were related to an inherited heart disorder known as arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia. His death was caused by multiple organ failure. Ramos’s message, which he posted on Twitter and Instagram, read: “10 years, my brother. 10 years have passed since you last visited us.
“Ten years of nothingness that we will never be able to comprehend.10 years’ worth of a punishment that will constantly follow us around.10 years of a life that has never been the same and will never be the same again.10 years of playing a game that you have earned the right to win. “10 years of fond and bittersweet memories.10 years of having a sense of being near yet not actually being.10 years’ worth of victories, all of which are and will remain yours.10 years equivalent to eternity.
Always with you, always with us: that is our promise. Together, Ramos and Puerta rose through the ranks of the Sevilla youth program and went on to play in the same defensive position for the first team until Ramos moved to Madrid in 2005. Thousands of supporters from both Sevilla and their fiercest rivals, Real Betis, flooded the streets to pay their respects to the defender after his death, and since 2008, the Trofeo Antonio Puerta memorial match has been played annually in his honor.
